Potato Chip Chocolate Dip Cone from Miss Softee and an Unholy Alliance...

Miss Softee with Potato Chip Choco Dip Cone
Darn it, Zach Brooks. Darn your stupid Midtown Lunch Twitter Tracker and its deliciousness. You introduced me to Miss Softee and two nights ago I finally tracked her down at her nighttime spot in midtown where I tried her Potato Chip Choco Dip Cone daily special and got a little inside scoop on her upcoming alliance with Kim from The Treats Truck. If all goes according to plan it's going down tomorrow...

Let's back this up for a sec. Zach dreamed up the Miss Softee + Treats Truck ice cream sandwich and after some back and forth tweets this week it it looks like it's good to happen tomorrow. When I was by Miss Softee's truck the other night she confirmed the Thursday alliance saying that she and the Treats Truck were going to make Oreos--Kim would be baking the cookies and she'd be providing the ice cream squirts. Not sure if that's still the game plan or if they've cooked up another sinfully delicious treat, but according to Miss Softee's twitter, the full details will be up this morning and there will be limited quantities, so come early. Your best bet is following Miss Softee or The Treats Truck or keeping track of all of the midtown food shenanigans via the Midtown Lunch Twitter Tracker.

As for the Potato Chip Chocolate Dip Cone...yum. I love sweet and salty combos so this was immediately intriguing. Reminded me a bit of my baby brother's potato chip chocolate chip cookie recipe, which perhaps I can persuade him to share with you readers some day. It was nice to have the chips big enough to get some crunch, but I wonder if it were made with smaller pulverized chip pieces of a slightly thicker cut chip like Kettle Chips if that would make this cone even more delicious. Just think of all the fun you could have with the Kettle Chip flavors. Salt and Vinegar, Spicy Thai, Death Valley Chipotle...

@anon: I'll see what I can do. My little bro is pretty guarded with his recipes, but maybe I can persuade him. It's for the good of the blog! ;)

@stacie joy: wooohoo! I hadn't seen that.
